The Hopewell News
What Does Governor Mean
By His Complete Surrender?
We just cannot understand what
has come over Governor Almond in
recent months. We do not Know j
what has so completely changed
his attitude.
Why did he pick Front Royal to
shoot torpedoes at those localities
that are determined to resist inte
gration of their schools by closing
down their public schools and oper
ating private schools? Why did he
pick this week to run up the white
fla% and surrender completely to
the tyranny of the Federal courts?
We all know that we cannot se
cede from the Union. We all know
we cannot overthrow the Federal
government. But we can resist the
illegal, unconstitutional mandates
of the Federal courts with the hope
that sooner or later this nation will
wake up and go back to the funda
mentals of the great United States
Constitution. Even the Warren
Court can reverse itself under pres
sure as is shown in the editorial
In our book his speech to the
graduates of the Warren County
Educational Foundation high school
at Front Royal was an abject sur
j render. Governor Almond, in effect,
| told the people of Virginia to go
ahead and integrate their schools.
| From fighting to preserve segre
! gation in our schools, the Governor
is not fighting to "preserve" those
schools by integrating them.
Majority Not Ready
We cannot believe that the ma
jority of the white people of Vir
| ginia are ready as yet to surrender
Governor Almond was the first to
applaud the people of Warren
County last September when they
set up a private school. The Warren
County Educational Foundation did
a magnificent job during the past
school year with this high school.
But rifts have developed since the ,
General Assembly adopted the Per
row plan, labeled “freedom of
In fact there was some dispute
over whether or not to withdraw
the invitation to Governor Almond
(which was issued months a:to>
after the widespread dissatisfaction
with the Perrow plan, which was
passed by such a small majority.
But the invitation was renewed and
now the Governor tries to wreck
the plans of the majority of the
people of Warren County to go
ahead and develop a private school,
rather than integrate their Warren
County High School where for the
past four months 21 colored pupils
have been going to school in lonely
splendor under the mandate of the
Federal courts.
How else could the people take
his talk, except that he was advis
ing them to go ahead and operate
the Warren County High School on
an integrated basis.
Throws Monkey Wrench
While the Governor did not men
tion Prince Edward County his
speech could only harm the efforts
’ of the good people down there to
protect themselves and operate pri
‘ vate schools for their children. I;
will tend to put a damper on the
efforts of other localities. WV know
it will not change the thinking of
the courageous people of Prince Ed
ward County and we can only hope
that it will not affect the efforts in
Wanen County to go ahead with
private schools.
In spite of what the Governor
said, the majority of Virginians do
not want to abandon public schools
on a Statewide basis. We were
under the impression that in adopt
ing tlie Perrow Plan the Governor
was trying to make it possible to
keep public schools wherever possi
ble and encourage private schools
m those localities that would not
integiate. Now he offers dire
’wonhecies of what will happen to
Virginia and berates those who
have battled so long and hard to
preserve our “efficient" segregated
school system.
We ask Governor Almond: “What’s
the deal?"
There must be some reason for
the Governor to change over com
pletely. In January he was breath
ing lire and brimstone against the
Federal tyranny. A week later when
the special session opened he was
advocating the same school pro
gram that Republican Ted Dalton
had campaigned on and which the
people of Virginia had overwhelm
ingly rejected by electing J. Lind
say Almond. Now he is apparently
advocating a complete surrender to
the NAACP and the Federal
Tyranny. So we ask: “What was
the Deal?"
Meanwhile as the Farmville Her
ald advises the people of Prince Ed
ward to “Stand Steady," we advise
the people ol Virginia to "Stand
Steady." We must continue this
fight for it is one of principle, of
liberty, of justice and our rights as
individuals and citizens of Virginia.
